Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said in a statement today that a crowd of about 300 men, armed with Molotov cocktails, attacked the base late Wednesday but were repelled by the National Guard and police forces.

Soldiers fired warning shots as militants attacked, the minister said, then fired on the attackers. He again accused Russia of being behind the attack.
